Few stories have captured the world's imagination as this "emotionally stunning"(Newsweek) cinematic classic based on the real diary of Anne Frank (Millie Perkins), a 13-year-old girl who chronicled the lives of two Jewish families hiding from the Nazis. Cramped in a tiny Amsterdam attic, Anne and seven others struggle to survive for two years as sirens in the street below remind them that Hitler's army is always waiting. Yet Anne's inquisitive mind and unceasing belief in the future soars way beyond their tragic confinement. Oscar winner Shelley Winters, Joseph Schildkraut, Lou Jacobi and Richard Beymer head a powerful supporting cast.
Luminous and profound in its presentation of the human spirit, this moving, yet uplifting film continues to stir generation after generation.
